Let These Words

Standard

Let these words wash over you
Like rain washing across the earth

Let them cover you in chills from
Head to toes
As your body shivers from the passion
It finds hidden behind the words

Let these words soothe your soul
And lift your dampened spirits like
A bowl of soup on a cold and
Chilly winter night

Let them bring light into your life
Like a ray of sun through your window
On an early summer morn

Let them fill you up with excitement
As the butterflies in your tummy
Do double twists
Knowing the words appeal to them

Let these words love you
Up and down
Night and day
In and out
Round and round
Sunday through Saturday

Let these words fill the void
Of my untimely absence

Until finally I return and
Hold you warm and close
In the comfort of my warm and
Loving arms

  2. You strung the words effortlessly together like an African old lady stringing pearls of beads to adorn a virgin waist. Beautiful , Boomie, this is one of the best poems I’ve read from you. Kudos!
